Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).
Loren: I liked the dolls when they were kind of an alternative to your standard kids toy but I don’t need to see this as a movie.
RDT: I’m never going to see this movie. Even if I have kids, it’s still not gonna happen. With Disney+ coming, those (currently fictional) kids will never have to watch shitty animated movies again! Hazzah!!!
Jen: The couldn’t even get Justin Timberlake for this? They had to settle for Nick Jonas? Pass.
AJ: Oh come on! They’re adorable! KELLY CLARKSON! Pop music! I’m totally in. You get-off-my-lawn people can suck it.
Josh: Alright, I’m back! And just in time for…ooh boy. Ok, this movie isn’t for me, but I suspect it will be a fun movie that kids will enjoy.
Loren: I like a lot about this movie but I’m not sold on it being any good. I’ll give it a watch down the road.
RDT: This looks cute enough. It’s unlikely I’ll see it in the theater, but I can see myself giving it a watch when it hits streaming.
Jen: I’ve heard surprisingly good things about this and I do love me some June Diane Rapheal, I’ll give this a go on streaming for sure.
AJ: I am so sold on this. As long as he’s not doing that intolerable laugh, I find Seth Rogen comedy enjoyable. This is the movie politics deserves.
Josh: I don’t know why, but Seth Rogen really annoys me. I’m probably in the minority here, but I usually don’t find him or his films funny. That being said, this trailer shows potential and if someone I trust tells me to check it out, I would.
Loren: I love the way these Chinese Fantasy Epics look but I never get around to watching them. Some day.
RDT: If this is worth my time, Rick will screen it. Only then will I watch.
Jen: RDT hit the nail on the head here, and, as of me writing this, I have not yet heard Rick’s take, but something tells me we may be seeing this down the road.
AJ: So……. just no. Sorry. I feel like I’m supposed to be into this but I am not.
Josh: These movies, even when I’m not as into the story, are always gorgeous to watch. I’m really digging the muted colors and I think I would very much enjoy this. That being said, unless someone tells me I need to see it in the theater, I’ll probably wait for home release. Continue reading
